Can you View or Download Private Account Picture on Instagram?


Instagram is one of the most popular pictures sharing platforms on the internet. Almost every popular celebrity and model share their pictures on this platform and every user who created their account on Instagram can view the pictures. While most of the celebrity accounts are set as public there is some account that wants to preserve their privacy by making their account private. To view the picture of a private account an account owner must accept the friend request. Once the account owner accepts your request you can view or download their posted pictures.

Currently, if the owners accept your requests only then you can view or download their Instagram Pictures otherwise you can’t unless you hack into their account. I have seen plenty of tutorial on the internet that claims that they have viewed the Instagram pictures of the private account using some sort of trick that doesn’t work for anyone as the rage I have seen in the comment section.
